What are these heavy duty words? The answer to that all of them have the same meaning…..fear…..fear of what? Fear of worms…..thier very sight is enough to give you goosebumps and anxiety.
Anxiety while seeing little harmless crawling creatures like worms, centipedes etc. I always have fear that worms might crawl on me whenever I go to the garden. Once I see any caterpillar nearby I am out of that place at that moment.
I always wondered why some people were scared of Cockroaches and lizards……they are angels compared to worm like creatures. If some gives me 5000 bucks and tell me to handle a caterpillar I would give the same person 6000 bucks more to take it away.
My Dear caterpillar, Why don’t you directly transform into a beautiful butterfly instead of eating everything around then meditating out of guilt inside a coccon and then achieve “moksha” and fly away with your beautiful wings. Being vegetarian you guys should look like hamsters cute and fluffy and not cute and scary at the same time. And some of you with spikes makes you scarier than your smoother brothers.
It’s just like a human baby transforming into an elephant then eating everything green available after getting tired of so much work he goes for hybernation and eventually when the time is right transform into a pixie.
I don’t have any personal grudges with you all but you make me nervous whenever I am buy to buy a cauliflower 😬 or broccoli. And then find you inside my food….while cleaning.
I would like to add one more being to this list. The almighty “Train insect” with hundreds of legs centipedes aka “kankhajura”. I have heard stories about you getting into people’s brain traveling via ears and laying eggs. Coz of your looks I named you train insect when I was a child.
**Note: Nature is beautiful, nourishing and scary at the same time. All the creatures play an important role in balancing mother earth. Things stated above are my childhood perspective.
With time the fear was gone although I do creep out sometime when I see them.
What happens when a noob like person tries to be Gordon Ramsay, Walter White or the crazy Walter Bishop……..they screw up bad. Although I had cooked few times at my sister’s place so I had the basic idea of cooking.
We were three roomates me, Richa and Rachana. Occasionally during Saturday’s or Sundays one of my roommate Rachana would cook fish for us.
Then one fine day I planned to cook mushroom curry. We got onions, tomatoes and potatoes from hostel mess and mushrooms from an online delivery app.
We had all the raw materials apart from spices and induction. So we went to a senior’s room at 5pm when she was deep asleep. Irritatedly she opened the door and asked what do you need we said induction and some spices for cooking and she gave it to us. Once we came back to our room and started cooking we realized that few more things were missing 😣. Yeah that’s where we screwed up…..it’s not good to wake up someone who is deep asleep as warth from God falls upon us🥺.
Little we knew what was coming for us. The second time it was just me who went to her room…..and knocked the door. This time she furious opened the door and she was like take everything….that was quite funny actually…..she was like take this take that take garam masala , take salt.
Being in a shock I went to my room with the remaining ingredients. Every thing went well till now, our food looked good with great aroma till it was time for the last chemical to be added which was “NaCl”. While adding the salt it looked kind of different from the regular salt consistency. We just neglected the fact and added it. And then all of a sudden the unexpected happened.
Turned out it wasn’t the NaCl but NaHCO3 in common man’s language known as Baking powder which gave us the memorable day. The expected curry turned out to be a cake. The gravy turned into a active volcanic eruption and everything overflowed out like lava. We tried to wash it repair it again 😒 but the taste so overwhelming 😩 for us we had to discard the entire experiment 😂. My Heart got scattered….. devastated and sad I was. Even that was not enough our neighbors Anjani and Tanu came to mock for fun. Typical “Virgo’s”. 🧐🧐
Although it was a failure at that time but an extremely memorable experience and an error story which I could tell my future friends.
Ever wondered how Boring Facebook and Instagram would become if all the meme pages are removed at once. Not a single day goes by when my WhatsApp status is not updated with a funny meme or at least funny according to my brain.
Meme pages with great content are the lifeline of the modern social networking sites. Without memes social networking would be like food without salt.
“Hail to the memes” and “Glory to the memers”. Although being a meme page Admin is not easy as if someone does not like your content you could get a lot of bashing.
Memes are of so much influence that even political narratives can be changed. People in support of Right wing might like some page in support of their political agendas and the left wing will have their own narrative.
The interesting thing is without wasting much money one could easily target the opponent in a very funny and sarcastic manner.
Pages are made in such a way that they attract a specific audiences. Like pages popxo and pinkVilla attract a lot of teenage girls and wemen. Similarly pages MensXp are specifically targeted at males.
Some memes are so much close to reality and they give so much description of our day to day lives that too with a pinch of laughter.
Some of the movie scenes have become favourites of meme communities. Like the likes of Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal in Hera Pheri , Modi ji and Rahul Gandhi memes, Tom and Jerry memes and the list goes on.
Memes are a source of smile although short lived but smiles are smiles which are contagious. I hope memers will continue their good work and make more people smile.
Adding some memes which might make your day. Enjoy scrolling fellas.

Veganism, vegetarianism and non vegetarians are in constant conflict with each other. People mocking each other at lunch table is common nowadays 😉. Everyone is there for you to justify why their food habits are best. As I ate chicken almost frequently few of my vegetarian friends were constantly explaining to me why being non vegetarian is cruel to the animals although when I gave a thought about it they were true as being caged can be very sad for the animals. We don’t know what they are going through…..
I never ate Cow due to my religious beliefs but I did mistakenly eaten pork dumpling once by mistakenly and to be frank it was one the tastiest meat I had eaten. But when I came to know that it wasn’t chicken but pork….I was full of guilt and remorse for 2-3 days because of my religious beliefs and nothing else. Being from a Bengali,Hindu family fish and chicken was very common in my diet. I tried being vegetarian many times but failed miserably…..as it is not easy to quit any food which we are used to.So now I have just reduced the intake of non veg food and my parents left meat and fish long back when he was diagnosed with minor cancer.
I don’t know about other countries but the way pigs are slaughtered in some parts of India is very inhumane and cruel. Hit them bad and insert rod from mouth to anal cavity. I don’t think anyone would to die such a gruesome death.
I am not against any domisticated food habit. But we do need to re evaluate the method of killing Right r farm animals so that they feel the least amount of pain and people eating them have less guilt.
According to me animals should not be kept in captivity like in cages….open farms should be promoted….and at the end have a less painful death before being served at anyone’s plate.

Few years back I was traveling with my flat mate for shopping …she was riding the scooty. It was a Sunday so the area was entirely empty. Suddenly we realized that two guys were following us and shouting and screaming in their local language.
My flat mate being a local understood that they were Eve teasing us and following us . So she increased the speed of the bike then these people also increased their speed and said something to us and took right turn.
The moment they turned their bike…..both the goons fell from their bike and had a severe accident. They deserved it 😁. What we sow is what we reap.
At that day my concept of karma got more stronger. No matter what happens God will help was and whoever did wrong to an innocent soul shall get the punishment.
This is one of the incidents which made me a strong believer in Karma.
